The NEW Boeing Hotel...Literally a Boeing 727 Converted To A Hotel

Holidaymakers wanting to feel like true high-flyers can now relax in a luxurious new hotel suite - inside a vintage Boeing airliner.

The exclusive two-bedroom suite is housed inside the fuselage of a 1965 Boeing 727, which was destined for scrap.

It costs between £200-250 per night to book the unusual suite, located at the Hotel Costa Verde on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica's Manuel Antonio National Park.

Jutting out from a hillside, the Boeing offers views of the ocean and the jungle from balconies built on each wing.

Inside the meticulously refurbished airframe are two wood-panelled bedrooms, a kitchenette, dining room and living area and two bathrooms.

A spokesman for the Hotel Costa Verde described it as 'the most exclusive hotel suite in Costa Rica'.

He said: "We are proud to unveil our newest lodgings - a fully outfitted, meticulously-detailed, two-bedroom, Boeing 727 fuselage suite.

"We have refurbished a vintage 1965 Boeing 727 airframe, which in its prior life shuttled globetrotters on South Africa Air and Avianca Airlines of Colombia.

"We salvaged this airframe, piece by piece, from its San Jose airport resting place.

"We carefully transported the pieces on five, big-rig trucks to the jungles of Manuel Antonio, where they have been resurrected into a unique jumbo hotel suite.

"Our classic airplane, nestled on the edge of the National Park, is perched on a 50-foot pedestal.

"At this height, you will enjoy scenic ocean and jungle views from the hard wood deck built atop the plane's former right wing.

"The plane's interior is Costa Rican teak panelling from the cockpit to the tail. Furnishings are hand-carved, teak furniture from Java, Indonesia.

"Enjoy an evening on the terrace while sipping a glass of wine and observing your tree top neighbours: sloths, toucans and monkeys."
